Why is the washer making noise and jumping during the spin cycle?

During the spin cycle the washer is off balance, and is making noise, even after making sure the wash load is evenly distributed.

This is kind dependent on the severity of the noise. Please describe it, is it a scraping or banging noise?

How much vibration are you getting?

UPDATE

Cause 1

Tub Bearing

The tub bearing is mounted in the middle of the outer tub. The tub bearing helps to keep the inner tub spinning smoothly. Replacing the tub bearing is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. If the tub bearing is defective, we recommend replacing both the outer tub and bearing as an assembly if the manufacturer offers the components together.

Cause 2

Tub Seal and Bearing Kit

The tub bearing is mounted in the middle of the outer tub. The tub bearing helps to keep the inner tub spinning smoothly. If the washer is noisy during the spin cycle or is leaking from the bottom of the tub near the transmission, the tub seal and bearing are likely defective. Replacing the tub bearing is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. If the tub bearing is defective, we recommend replacing the outer tub and bearing at the same time.

Cause 3

Rear Drum with Bearing

The rear drum has a bearing or bearings in it to keep the inner tub spinning smoothly. If the tub bearing system is defective the washer can become very noisy. On some machines bearings are sold separately from the rear drum, however we recommend replacing both the outer drum and bearing as an assembly if the manufacturer offers the components together because removing and pressing in the new bearing can be exceptionally difficult. Be aware that replacing the outer tub and bearing is also not easy and can be very costly.

It is not severely loud, but it is vibrating a lot. Not moving on it's own yet. It's almost like every load is unbalanced. I have stopped the loads and redistributed them, but it is still doing the same thing.

@sandwoman , Edyth, Sounds like a counter balance issue/broken spring/mount or spring may have just popped off, worn top balance ring allowing tub to wobble/ too much play or the pads on the skate plate worn. If not comfortable doing the repair have a good technician have a look, diagnose and estimate repair. I've posted links below to show what could be the issue and second link shows procedure to repair. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
